There has been much discussion in the blogosphere regarding Google Friend Connect.
It appears to me that many of us that have been experiencing problems with Blogger...are probably having these issues because Google and Blogger are working on a new Google Friend Connect...called Following. You can read more about it here!!
Since I am on the Blogger Platform and have been since the very beginning (four years ago) I was freaking out because I thought I'd lose all of the Followers I had managed to build up over time. So, I started adding widgets to my blog...I created a page on Facebook and added the Networked Blogs Badge.
Now, I can heave a sigh of relief as I have discovered that my followers will not be affected by these changes. Wordpress was interesting to me and I had considered making that move...but to be perfectly honest, I'm just afraid to move platforms. There's been so much time and energy channeled into this blog, that I cannot even imagine it all being wiped out in an instant! I know it can be.
I just don't want to think about it!
